Education Justice

The Children’s Defense Fund initiated its national Cradle to Prison Pipeline® campaign to reduce the detention and incarceration of youth and young adults by increasing the preventative supports and services children need, such as quality early childhood development, education services, and comprehensive health and mental health coverage.

The overall goal of the Children’s Defense Fund–New York’s Education Justice work is to improve education outcomes for youth by keeping them in school with the support of caring communities, and out of court!
